The “Big Four” are coming to Australia!

China’s lineup for the 2018 ITTF World Tour Australian Open has been released, and the biggest names in table tennis have entered.

The “Big Four” comprised of Ma Long, Zhang Jike, Xu Xin and Fan Zhendong will all head to Geelong, Victoria for the 2018 Seamaster ITTF World Tour Platinum event, which takes place from the 24-29 of July in the Geelong Arena.

Fan Zhendong, the current World No.1, tops the seeding for the Men’s Singles, while reigning World and Olympic Champion Ma Long is close behind as the number two seed.

Meanwhile, Grand Slam Champion and fan favourite Zhang Jike is on the comeback trail as he continues to make his return to the game after having some time off with injury.

The event will have the strongest field of athletes of any tournament ever staged in Australia; even surpassing the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.

Don’t miss this possibly once in a lifetime opportunity to see the “Big Four” in action in Australia!
